Accent Wall Wallpaper Texture Dreams

For every Indian household, the mandir or pooja room holds a special place. However, apartments nowadays rarely come with a separate room for it. So what’s the solution? Create an accent wall and DIY a pooja room with stylish wall shelves and a modern TV unit. Check out the image below. We have glammed up this space using a golden textured wallpaper, mimicking a designer paint job. The colours perfectly contrast with the warm brown furniture pieces, making your home full of a calm, warm, and spiritual vibe.

Turn heads and wow your guests with bold and patterned wallpaper. Be it a big floral design, geometric patterns or abstract print with textured wallpaper, you don’t need to break the bank to achieve an Instagram-worthy accent wall. Like the living room shown in the image below. We have used a black textured wallpaper with bold line prints for the TV wall. Light grey furnishings beautifully contrast with the overall dark theme of the living room.

Wood Texture Wallpaper for Partition Accent Wall

Your dinner guests will go ‘Oh la la’ whenever they see your wooden accent wall in your dining room. But wood is very expensive, and maintaining it in its perfect shape can be cumbersome. So, the best way to achieve this look is wood texture wallpaper. Take this wall in the image below, for example. The half divider positioned at the kitchen entrance has been covered in a trending wallpaper design that matches the other elements of the house. Being a room divider doesn’t disrupt the conversations, yet it gives privacy while you cook.

Are you someone who loves to experiment with the decor of your home? For instance, a warm wooden cabin vibe for the chilly fall season or a cheery vibe for spring? Wallpapers should be your best friend. They are inexpensive and easy to apply and remove. Take this dining room, for instance.

3D Textured Wallpaper for an Impactful Balcony Design

Want to add interest to small spaces like corridors or balconies? By papering just one wall as a feature design and keeping the rest of the walls neutral, you can draw attention and make it the star of the show! You can choose a bold design, but be sure not to go too overboard, as you don’t want the space to feel cramped. Take a cue from the balcony design shown in the image below. The 3D textured wallpaper wallpaper has added personality but by choosing it in a neutral beige colour, we have ensured that it doesn’t steal the limelight from the stylish modular bar cabinet.

Play With Patterns, Lines & Colours 

If you have a bath, then use it as an opportunity to show off your textured wallpaper. This is a great way to add interest to the room and make the bath the focal point. Just be sure to choose a design that compliments the rest of your decor. For instance, we have experimented with a bold Turkish hamam-style wallpaper that perfectly contrasts with the subtle wall tiles. This wallpaper’s midnight blue, beige and grey patterns are fresh and energising.

FAQs On Textured Wallpaper Design

Can textured wallpaper be used on all wall surfaces, including uneven ones?
Textured wallpaper can hide any bumps and unevenness on your wall. Opt for thicker wallpaper. You can also choose a dark colour or busier prints.

Does textured wallpaper require special preparation of the wall surface before installation?
Before installing textured wallpaper:

  • Prepare your wall by filling in any holes or craters with spackle and sanding any bumps.
  • Vacuum the wall to remove any dust or debris and wipe it down.
  • Prime it with the appropriate primer before applying the textured wallpaper.

Are there specific considerations when choosing textured wallpaper for small spaces?
You cannot paint over the textured wallpaper as the texture will show through. Hence, you can paint the other walls to match the colour of the wallpaper or choose a paint colour that contrasts with it.

Are there eco-friendly options for textured wallpaper?
Selecting the right wallpaper involves considering materials suitable for your climate and family. Most wallpapers contain PVC and VOC. If you are looking for eco-friendly alternatives, opt for wallpapers printed on recycled or Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper.

Are there specific considerations when choosing textured wallpaper for small spaces?
Choosing the right textured wallpaper for a small space can be tricky. Avoid too bold designs or too many prints or colours, as they can make the already small space look cramped. So, opt for subtle textures with muted undertones or one solid colour for such spaces.
